Just reel an Arbogast Jitterbug in and let it wag back and forth with a deep, gurgling rhythm that bass can't ignore. The bigger lunkers often follow the Jitterbug for half a retrieve until they can't resist it anymore and attack. The Jointed Jitterbug's tail packs extra shimmy.
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Worth a try This cousin to the non-jointed bug puts out plenty of action and has the "sit-down" in the water feature unlike the single section bait. The flexible hook hangers help keep bass buttoned better, too, but somehow I find I get more strikes on the original. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lure One of the best top water baits for bass and pike! September 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ...sweet surface action fishbait... ...like...the jointed version of the jitterbug is another great fishbait from pradco...the tail stits in the water a bit lower and helps to hook~up the ones that love the tails...i have used both the bigger and smaller "joint"...both baits are loved by the feesh... ...ponds and smaller lakes are where these baits rock...digg...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great night bite bait! I use these on my night bass trips. A good rip and a pause is all it takes! The bass can't resist. My biggest to date is a 5.5lb on the all black jointed. Add a glow dot or two to the belly in the early Spring if they're not hitting at night. April 12, 2013

A: 
The hooks are attached using tiny screws. I've replaced the strap with an eye screw and split ring before. It worked well until a giant pickerel destroyed the bait.

A: 
Use an eyeglass screw driver and take the rear screw out. Gently pull down the lip, slide the existing hooks over the lip and replace with those of your choice. Replace the screw, do not over tighten, keep it snug. Your ready to go.

A: 
You can cut them off with diagonal cutting pliers and put a split ring on the hook hanger before adding the hook. Or remove one both of the screws holding the hook hanger. I'd put super glue in the screw holes before driving the screws back in.

Or get rid of the hangers and add screw eyes and split rings.

For the rear hook on the Jointed model, I'd cut it off and attach a split ring for the new hook.

A: 
I always replace the hooks before I fish this bait. I use a bench grinder to remove the front hook and then replace the hook with a small split ring. I do the same on the back as well.

A: 
well it depends which one you want to replace. one of my hooks got beaten up after getting soo much action. anyways, the back one where the joint is, the ring holding the hook can be bent with pliars. if its the one on the bottom, you need to unscrew the little plate holding the hook on. i put nice trebble hooks on which made me set the hook faster, easier, and he will not get away
